The Power of a 1031 Exhange

A 1031 exchange is a powerful tax strategy many real estate investors use that allows you to pay less on taxes by deferring your capital gains on a rental investment property. In order to qualify for 1031, you must use a qualified 1031 exchange company and place the proceeds of the sale of your original property into a custodial account. You can then take your sales profits and move in from a low yield (low cash flow) into stronger performing cash flow property or properties (this is very common for investors moving profits from California, Washington, NY and Florida into midwest or southeast states)


Once again, the profits you make are only deferred and they must be used to purchase a more expensive "like kind "property. The rules say that you have 45 days to identify a replacement property to buy and then 180 days to close on that investment property. The power of this strategy is that you are able to avoid paying capital gains taxes and then acquire a larger investment with higher potential cash flow. In essence, the capital gains taxes that you were going to pay is now transferred as a down payment towards that larger property. One last huge benefit is if you hold the property until you die, your children will not have to pay any of those capital gains because the basis (the amount your home (or other property) is worth for tax purposes) will be reset.

This website uses the term “Internal Rate of Return” with respect to both (i) individual realized deals and (ii) all realized deals as of a particular date. With regard to an individual realized deal, the term “Internal Rate of Return” means, with respect to the investors in the realized deal, the discount rate, using cumulative annual compounding, at which the net present value of the total of the investors’ (a) aggregate capital contributions to the issuer of the realized deal and (b) aggregate distributions from the issuer of the realized deal, equals zero, and calculated for each such capital contribution from the date the offering was removed from the Altus Investment Group, LLC Marketplace (the “Marketplace”) and from the date such distribution, as applicable, was made. The calculation of an individual Internal Rate of Return is determined by using the XIRR function of Microsoft Excel. To determine the Internal Rate of Return for all realized deals as of a particular date (with respect to the investors in such realized deals), we calculate the weighted average of each individual realized deal’s Internal Rate of Return based on the aggregate capital contributions provided by investors through the Marketplace. It is important to note that most of the investments on the Marketplace are still in their holding periods. The fully realized deals represent a small portion of total deals on the Marketplace, and it may be more likely for deals that realized early to have experienced a high value exit and for deals that are not performing well to be delayed in their realization. Accordingly, the performance information to date may not be an accurate indicator of overall Marketplace performance. Furthermore, Altus Investment Group, LLC is not responsible for the performance of deals on the Marketplace, and past performance is not indicative of future results. You should not invest unless you can sustain the risk of full loss of capital.
